1930 called...They want their Postcard back.(edited)

1901 is just a guess, but after a comment by Oh Henry (below) I decided to look a little further instead of guessing.  I visited a great site Postcardy and learned that I was about 30 years off. Now, judging by the design on the front - a print on silk with the message embossed in gold - I am going with 1930. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
Remember the days when neither a zip code or a house number was necessary for a piece of mail to reach its destination? Me neither, but it must have been sweet.  Happy New Year.


  1. It has to be at least a few years later. In 1901 postcard backs were still undivided, and only the address was permitted on the reverse.

  2. Thanks Henry! You are correct. Linen cards were present mainly from the 1930's to the 50's. I would have to say this one was closer to 1930.
